Do they put down animals that have been at the Humane Society too long?
Unfortunately, yes. This is WHY Bob Barker and Betty White have been advocating spaying or neutering all pets all these years. There are just too many feral dogs and cats to provide proper care for all of them.
A county shelter will give an animal up for adoption for a few months, when the months are done they may, depending on the shelter, put down the animal. In a humane society they areusually a no kill shelter. That means that the animals don't have "months" to survive in the shelter, just until they are adopted.
people can help become part of an elaborate team by helping out in an animal shelter of the humane society or not getting puppies from a breeder just adopt the pups from a shelter and save an animals life from probably being put down or euthinized (put to sleep forever) :( the humane society is the best thing you can do.
The mission statement of the American Humane Society states that its aims are to "focused on preventing cruelty, neglect and exploitation of animals". This seems to say that they will do anything they can to prevent animals being abused or neglected. They probably don't think euthanasia is appropriate, but what other choice do they have?

How can you report a Humane Society that claims to be a no-kill shelter but in reality puts down unadopted animals after a week?
If the humane society is NOT the organization that has authority to handle animal abuse cases, then you could try to report them to the organization that does have the authority. If they are in the same city, or near, then it might be really hard to get them to investigate. If that is the case, or if this shelter you want to report is authorized to investigate and arrest on charges of animal cruelty…
